what those In the Project Have To Say
“I see the Women’s Spirit Project as helping women take the first step to help themselves … to get the strength and courage to take the next couple of steps.”
“I’ve actually joined a lot of groups and I’ve worked in many community agencies and I think what was unique from the beginning was that we all felt safe; we felt like we could be who we are and be our real selves. And for me that was the difference.”
“I’ve had a rough time in my own personal situation but I’ve held together… (because) my mindset is so much stronger. I couldn’t have paid for something like this.”
“I’ve been seeing the same counsellor for thirteen years, and I’ve not seen her since November, because I just manage things better… I can fix this. I don’t need to run to others.”
